How to use health data from CBS and an example of a COVID-19 study
What can Statistics Netherlands offer you for your research: Introduction to the Statline open database and Microdata Services, including an example of COVID-19 research using microdata.
Parallel session of the Health-RI conference 2021
- Date: 4 March 2021
- Time: 15:50-16:20
CBS offers a wide range of administrative health and healthcare data that can be reused to do your own research. This session will show, firstly, how you can use the CBS open database Statline to compile your own tables and graphs on topics like health, life style and use of care. Secondly, we demonstrate how you can get direct access to the CBS microdata to conduct your own research. Microdata are administrative population data at the level of individuals, companies and addresses. Under strict safety regulations, you can use the microdata for your own scientific and statistical research, if you’re working at an authorized institute. Under specific conditions, it is also possible to combine your own survey- and other data with these microdata, offering even more possibilities for research. The presentations in this session will give you an introduction to the possibilities and operations of the two CBS data facilities. In addition, a showcase of current research based on the use of these data facilities will be presented: Why crowding matters in the time of COVID-19 pandemic? A lesson from the carnival effect on the 2017/2018 influenza epidemic in the Netherlands.
